Think about this: As we move all our current events both past and present into a digital format and this information can and is maintained by a ruling party. This is not as far-fetched as it may seem. We use our electronics to look up all sorts of information. We have learned that many of our social media sights are being heavily influenced by a political agenda, but the current ruling party. What if your internet provider begins to influence where you get your information? You type in Wikipedia, but they direct you to a ruling part information sight, and we do not even know it.
Think about this as well. We are being persuaded to move all our personal data to the cloud, to store our personal data on servers controlled by a third party. But, even on our own computers, we know that our personal data can be accessed. Our information, our personal information is not safe. Should we print out this information, should we have offline storage for our personal data, both digital and printed. We probably should, so, do we? Probably not for a couple reasons. The amount of effort to do so, constantly. The other reason is that it is hard to imagine we are actually going down this rabbit hole.
Read the following from George Orwell’s 1984:
|GO 37: And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told the same tale-then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past, ‘ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’ And yet the past, though its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting.|
Every piece of information, history, facts, events, what was said when its primary access has gone digital, those in control, will control the information flow, thus can change the digital information to make it match the present. Where will the written information be, written information will not be allowed, we will use digital pads and pens, thus all information can always be edited.
Some of us will be like Winston from 1984.
